YOUR CHILD'S HOME AWAY FROM HOME
Little Lights Class Schedule
3’s and 4’s
Our Little Lights preschool program exposes young children to the True Light, nurturing their knowledge and relationship with Jesus.
Jumpstart your child’s education with hands-on learning at Little Lights. Our teachers teach hands-on math, phonics and handwriting.
At Little Lights, your child will learn more than just academically. We teach our students to put others before themselves. One way we do this is by teaching them how to pray for each other’s needs. We expose the children to the Gospel and make the Bible stories come to life during Bible time each day.
Life skills like learning to zip up your coat and to pour your friends glass of juice are taught daily in our structured environment.
We emphasize using manners and being polite. The children are academically and socially prepared for Kindergarten.
